199 for 8




46 for 5



Somerset won

 by 153 runs

On winning the toss Somerset got away to a flyer and were 55-1 off 10 overs as a result of good running and poor Gwent bowling fielding which yielded 54 extras over the innings. After 20 overs Somerset were 109 -2 and a huge total looked possible but after the drinks break Gwent fought back taking 4 quick wickets.  This was only a brief respite as Somerset reached a competitive 199-8 after their 40 overs. Robert Clarke was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets and Keane Royall had a creditable debut match for the county.

In reply, Gwent never got going and only Ryan Avery reached double figures. The Somerset bowling and fielding was superb and Gwent could only manage to score at a run an over during their innings.

Best Performances: Robert Clarke 3 for 29, Aadam Hassan, Lewys Jones, Matthew Hancock and Keane Royall each took a wicket.



152 all out



147 for 7


Gloucester won

by 5 runs


Gloucester s won the toss and elected to bat first but were soon in trouble losing wickets early on.  However, they recovered to  finish on a creditable 152 all out after being 41-5 at one stage. Sam Hope-Bell was the pick of the Gwent bowlers taking 3-16 off 7 overs. 

Gwent also got off to a bad start losing two early wickets but a 46-run partnership by Sam Hope-Bell and Matthew Hancock put them in a commanding position.  They rather lost their way in the last ten overs, however, and finished just 6 runs short of victory.

Best Performances: Sam Hope-Bell  49 & 3 for 16, Matthew Hancock 38, Robert Clarke 2-13, Jack Turner, Jordan Harris-Cupit and Keane Royall each took a wicket



95 for 6



96 for 6


Hereford won

by 4 wickets

Gwent batted first in damp conditions after a delayed start (which led to reduced overs game) and posted a competitive score of 95-6 in 30 overs. Sam Hope-Bell was the pick of the batsmen scoring a patient 25.

Gwent did not bowl particularly well and only stayed in with a shout of winning with some very good ground fielding. But Hereford reached the required target  wickets and 2.2 overs to spare.  Robert Clarke and Sam Hope-Bell were the only two Gwent bowlers to cause any problems with a total of 34 extras conceded!

Best Performances: Robert Clarke 2-11 and 2 run-outs, Sam Hope-Bell 25, Sam and  Matthew Hancock took a wicket each




Report awaited from Manager




Match abandoned due to the weather


Cardiff & Vale

87 for 7



86 all out


Cardiff & Vale won by 3 wickets 

Gwent lost the toss and were asked to bat first on a pitch of very unreliable bounce. Some very gutsy batting from some of the Gwent batsmen saw them reach a creditable 86 all out.

Cardiff reached this total but they also found it a struggle as they lost 7 wickets in the process.  Sam Hope-Bell took three wickets and there was a good fielding display with two catches, by  Drew Heffernan and Lewys Jones, and two run-outs caused by Ryan Avery  and Matthew Hancock.

Best Performances: Sam Hope-Bell 3-27, Ryan Avery 21, David Clarke 16.  




143 for 6




129 all out



Wiltshire won

 by 14 runs

Gwent asked Wiltshire to bat first on a green wicket and bowled and fielded really well. After twenty overs they had struggled to  55 without loss but in the next 20 overs they scored a further 88 runs to finish on a respectable 143-6. This was mainly due to the 46 wides bowled by Gwent.  The fielders played their part, however, with Matthew Hancock taking a catch and he and Keane Royall both causing run-outs while keeper David Clarke had two stumpings.

In reply, Gwent were always up with the run rate but lost 4 early wickets. Opener Sam Hope-Bell, who went on to make 44, and Jack Turner batted really well to put Gwent in a strong position at 96-4 after 28 overs.  However, after the drinks break, Gwent lost 4 wickets for only 2 runs but a spirited last wicket partnership saw them get within 14 runs of victory only for the last batsman to get run out leaving Drew Hefferman on 21no.

Best Performances: Sam Hope-Bell 44, Drew Hefferman 21no, Drew Hefferman took two wickets and Sam Hope-Bell and Roddy Thomas one each.



83 for 2



all out


Berkshire won

by 8 wickets

Gwent won the toss and elected to bat first and were, disappointingly, all out with ten overs of their innings left.  Only Lewys Jones and Sam Hope-Bell made it into into double figures. 

In reply Berkshire batted very sensibly with their batsmen just occupying the crease and accumulating the runs without any real alarms. Only James Watkins bowled with any real accuracy taking I wicket for 6 runs off 5 overs.

Best Performances: Lewys Jones 16, James Watkins 1 for 6.
